SF's Bohemian Club to pay workers $7 million in settlement

Sterling was from a well-to-do Oakland family and a poet. London met him in the early 1900s, and they became close friends. George became "Greek" for his profile, while London became "Wolf," his avatar. London often asked George to review a manuscript before publication. They were members of the Bohemian Club, then consisting of those devoted to the seven arts and poverty (very unlike today's club), and created shows at its annual gatherings in the redwood grove near Monte Rio, CA. Despite a reputation as a bon vivant, Sterling was devoted to his job as an executive at his uncle's firm. He was known to be exceptional at business, but eventually alcoholism interfered with his home and work life. In contrast, he chose an inadequate publisher for his poetry, which gained little attention beyond the greater San Francisco Bay area. Sterling's drinking even disrupted his relationship with Jack during his final years, though the affection never vanished.
While a youth, Jack discovered the Oakland Library, where Coolbrith worked as a librarian. Active in the early years of the Overland Monthly, Coolbrith knew key literary figures, including Mark Twain, Bret Harte, and Ambrose Bierce. A published poet, she held literary salons in her home and inspired upcoming writers. She was the first honorary female member of the Bohemian Club, and later became California's first Poet Laureate. At the library she sought personal connections with readers and guided their interests. In 1906, London thanked her for being "the first one who ever complimented me on my choice of reading matter....Proud! If only you knew how proud your words made me."

Bohemian Grove Roster Sent Anonymously to Infowars
Membership List Reveals Former Presidents, Host of Academics and NWO Operators
An interesting package came into the Infowars mailbox recently-- sent anonymously with no return address-- but the contents revealed the reason for secrecy. Someone has shipped our office the 2006 membership roster for the secretive and exclusive Bohemian Grove, which Alex Jones infiltrated and exposed in 2000.
A number of high profile elites appear on the list, including David Rockefeller (and son), Henry Kissinger, George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, David Gergen (who Alex Jones confronted about his grove membership), Colin Powell, George P. Shultz, Donald Rumsfeld and even Kenneth Starr, who gained attention after prosecuting Bill Clinton.
See a 1981 news report on the grove.
Many U.S. Presidents have gone to the grove, but most do not appear on the membership roster, though we know that Reagan, Nixon (both pictured below at the Grove), George W. Bush, Herbert Hoover and many other presidents have also attended but are not listed, as is the case for presidential advisor Karl Rove.
Walter Cronkite, the infamous and notable TV journalist, is also a member and listed in the directory. The 'P' next to his name denotes "Regular - Professional." Also listed is the King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf.
Beyond Presidents and elite world controllers, the exclusive male-only club has obviously used the appeal of the retreat to influence the world of academia-- at least 50 well-known universities are represented at Bohemian Grove, including almost every school in California, at least any that come to mind. The members-- which includes listings of older and deceased members who no longer attend-- are influential faculty members, board members, trustees or presidents of universities.
Stanford University with 17 members and U.C. Berkeley with 19 members, were the most heavily represented schools. (See members from academia below-- note: only those members with schools listed by their name were counted as academia, with many other members listed by city and name or only by name).

Also, the Indian Ambassador to the U.S., K Shankar Bajpai (Jan 25, 1968), also a CFR member.
I've also included the so-called 'LIST OF FIFTY' a list honoring regular attendees, though few of the names stand out on first pass. 'Honorary Associates' and 'Honorary Regulars' are also distinguished in the 104-page directory with thousands of names.
Notably, in addition to the anonymous shipping of this directory, Alex Jones received a call at his home from the BOHEMIAN GROVE, which was listed on caller-id, but no one identified themselves. It is not clear if this member roster was sent by an employee of the Grove, a member or came to this office through other means.
Roy A. "Bud" Folger, 81, a beloved personality of the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas and longtime resident of Menlo Park and Palo Alto, died July 18 in Santa Cruz. A man of irrepressible good cheer and generosity, his love of music, humor and people endeared him to countless friends. He grew up in Palo Alto and graduated from the University of Santa Clara in 1941 before joining the Army Air Force and serving as master sergeant in the European campaign. He then went to work at his father's insurance brokerage firm and continued the business for the next 40 years. Until he and his wife Patricia moved to Santa Clara County in 1985, he was an active member of St. Raymond's Catholic Parish in Menlo Park, as well as the Guardsmen, the Olympic, and Bohemian clubs of San Francisco. He served as president of the Bohemian Club from 1971 through 1973. His great talent was in sharing his tremendous warmth, wit, and kindness with all he met. He is survived by six children, Roy Folger, Jr. of Mountain View; Timothy Folger of Watsonville; Laura Folger of San Francisco; Matthew Folger of Huntington Beach; Susan Thomson of Mountain View; and Sarah Folger of Los Angeles; three sisters, Elizabeth Erlin of Palo Alto; Grace Haid of Menlo Park; and Mary Barrett of Palm Springs; and an abundance of grandchildren. A memorial mass has been held. Donations may be sent to Camphill Special School-Beaver Run, 1784 Fairview Road, Glenmoore, Penn. 19343.
